Strategic Development Planning Harmonisation at the Cantonal Level

The first meeting of the Working Group for Harmonization of Strategic Planning at Cantonal Level in FBiH was held on July 17, 2012, at the initiative of UNDP and the Federal Institute for Development Programming. Meeting was held in Sarajevo, within the extension of the Local Integrated Development Project (ILDP).

The goal of this process is to harmonize and institutionalize the methodology for the strategic planning in cantons in the FBiH based on the existing methodology for planning of local economic development, as well as the modular system of strategic planning at the level of state and entity/BD. The Working Group was established at the meeting, and the methodological framework analyzed, goals agreed, as well as principles and basic elements that should be included in the new methodology. This should serve as input for a second Working Group meeting that should be held in October of this year.

29 members participated the meeting, mainly representatives of cantons as well as other institutions and inter-national organizations.
